2-year-old hit with foul ball during Cubs, Astros game had skull fracture, attorney says

Attorney Richard Mithoff on Wednesday provided the first update by the girl’s family on her condition since she was hit during the May 29 game in Houston.

Mithoff says the girl had bleeding and swelling in her brain as well as a brain contusion after she was hit. He says she had a seizure after she was hospitalized and is taking medication to prevent more seizures.

While several teams have said they’ll extend protective netting after various incidents of fans getting hit by foul balls, the Astros say they will continue studying the issue.

It was previously reported that the child was 4 years old.
